government oversees, like medicare, like social security, like the department of defense. and attitudes shift dramatically. suddenly, the public is quite happy with what the federal government is doing. which gets us to the much bigger challenge that the affordable care act represents. this isn't just about whether the white house and its allies can make a law work. it is a test, it is perhaps the defining test for the democratic party, a party that enacted the affordable care act without any republican support, and a party that is now trying to implement it with almost no republican support. there is a basic philosophical difference between the two parties today, it is that democrats believe the federal government can do big things. should do big things. there is no bigger more singular test of that belief than the affordable care act. if they fail that test, it will validate powerfully what has been the central conservative message since ronald reagan came to the national stage. every new program, every new initiative that any democrat proposes in the future would then face the same k

obama care remains a preparty test, it's hard to see most of america embracing medicare expansion. this is why the brent to the heart, to dallas texas, to make a pitch for rick merry's state to sign on for expansion. >> i think that all of you understand that no state that actually needs this more than texas. here in just the dallas area, 133,000 people who don't currently have health insurance would immediately get health insurance, without even having to go through the website if the state of texas decided to do it. >> but this is the tea party era. this is texas. so not surprising outside that event there were protesters tweaking president obama. democrats in general are fighting a long war here. it seems that for the foreseeable future, being poor in red state america and poor in blue state america will mean very different levels of service all because of our polarized politics. we will talk about all of this with a policy reporter for politico.com. a political correspondent for national journal, nbc correspondent. steve kornacki, last minute. jeremy peters, politics reporter from t

getting medicare money and having flexibility to our needs was very important. unfortunately, one of the prices of that medicaid money now is to have some things that in my opinion are very detrimental to the act we passed and to be able to continue to move forward. because one of the things we did was one of the relatively easy things here is reduce coverage. we now have one of the greatest rates of insurance coverage in the nation. in fact, we're at about 98%. i don't know it will get much higher than. that but the elussive thing here is always the issue of cost containment and what are you going to do to truly make things affordable? so the flipside of your argument is that if we continue to mandate things people can't afford, we have two choice, one, we will increase our subsidies or, two, we have to have a safety valve, in fact, one of the most recent studies released indicates that for males, non-smokers, 30-years-old, they will see a premium increase of 230%. for females, it will be close to 200%. so if we continue to mantate things, i agree, we don't want elouisry policies that d

voting rights act, the tax cut, medicare, all barreled through congress and into law. the same time, american involvement in vietnam only escalated. this is not so say kennedy's presidency was without achievement. kennedy's mix of resolve and restraint during the cuban missile crisis of 1962 will long be cited as a model of statesmanship. the nuclear test ban treaty signed by the united states, the soviet union and britain in 1963, less than two decades after hiroshima is another clear triumph. still there is also a clear disconnect between how kennedy's presidency is assessed by historians and tend to rate him as a slightly better than average commander in chief. the rest of america continues to revere him. where does this disconnect come from, the power of image, the president who symbolized youth and hope in a new generation, the best of america cut down in his prime, cut down just when he was on the verge of greatness. is it a testament to the loyalty of his circle, to all the kennedy men and women who devoted themselves for years for decades to painting a bright historical pict

little bit. >> the reason we're in a deficit today is two unpaid wars the medicare part d program unpaid for large tax breaks a. trillion dollars which went to the wealthy. i only say that is that as we go forward to figure out where we want to be as priorities. you got to remember that fact as well. >> it's small things, we get to anger at the banks, anger at the financial institutions. in a lot of casings in the clinton years, democrats were saying he says his could be coming to an end. >> that sort of anger plays very welon social media and that particular group of voters is very active with social media. i think progressives have done a good job on capital collateralizeing on that medium. they are adept at using those medium to spread their message and keep the heros like elizabeth warren and keep their elected officials pure in the same way you see conservatives do. >> i think in congress you can sort of do what bernie sanders does and stake-out as far left a position you want. there is a clearer ability to develop an activist base from that. at the local level, particularly

, you know, probably if you took a poll and said medicare, do you like it? you might get the same result. because a lot of people are confused about it. isn't that medicaid? so i think in that poll that 48-48 split is an important number. >> this is a federal mandate. >> that means that everybody is affected by it. people are affected by this. folks that thought they weren't going to be avlged by this, could keep their plan, fine out they can't keep their plan. >> the other issue. >> exactly my point. we have room. >> we cope saying if this website gets up and running, how many people will find out they have benefits. >> and the people who got these renewal notices can find alternatives that they are happy with. >> i want to, go ahead, yeah. >> so there is sort of two competing constituencies here, you have the 5 million or so americans who is lost or had their health insurance changes as a result of the affordable care act the 40 million or so americans who didn't have health insurance to begin with. so the question going forward is how many, leak whose voice ends up weighing mor
